Description

This is the final result of my first PC build that I started back in September of 2016, since then it has undergone many changes, mainly aesthetic to now what is something that I can call unique and personal. The Ram Sticks are covered in a white carbon fibre wrap which I purchased from the vinyl warehouse, the same goes for the SSD's which are in a black carbon fibre. My graphics card has been plastidipped in white to match the builds theme. This PC can currently run games easily at 1080p 60hz, medium to high settings on most games(gta5, Battlefield 4, Battlefield 1 csgo and overwatch) and I am planning to get a 144hz monitor soon to take advantage of its power. The cpu has been overclocked to 4.3 ghz and is stable under load. The gpu has not been overclocked.

Really nice build, especially for a first build. A question though, wherer did you find that GPU, because pretty much every rx-480 is sold out.

I know, my build was gonna consist of a 480, but they're all sold out EVERYWHERE. (Got a 1060 instead) It's crazy.

I was going to sell my 1070 and get a 480, since I do not need the amount of power my 1070 provides, but they are all sold out.

A 1060 is on-par with the 480

i got the GPU back just after it came out from Overclockers UK, however, i have noticed that there is limited stock at the moment. i think it might have somthing to do with the ethereum mining craze that i read up on . apparently the rx480s and 580s are really desirable and are getting sold out as a mining rig requires up to 6!

yh i was thinking about it but not sure as I haven't seen that many going on eBay , might just put it up just in case someone wants to buy it for a ridiculous amount .

I feel like every build has a pop figure in their pictures xD

Great job with the RGB Strip

I do not have a pop figure in my window, I kind of want one though, but I am not sure which one I want. I think I might get an overwatch one of some sort

sell the rx 480, you'll get a lot more money than what you bought it for because of the mining craze

sounds good. Enjoy a nice 1070 upgrade from that. Don't let anyone buy it for less than £280. It can go a lot higher, the bids you were looking at were probably early bids.

Nice Build! Can you tell me where have you connected the two front fans on the motherboard along with the S340 fans?

i had to get a fan splitter as there weren't enough fan headers on the motherboard
